Thursday Night's Debate Moderator Needs To Be Replaced: CALL TO ACTION!


As you know, the much anticipated debate between Sarah Palin and Joe Biden is tomorrow night! Gwen Ifill, of PBS, will moderate this event. An interesting tidbit has emerged, however, that Ifill has played quite a part in promoting the success of Barack Obama. Gwen Ifill, as most are from PBS, is a known liberal and has been on many mainstream media networks criticizing Palin and clearly supporting Obama. Her new book, entitled "Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama" releases on Inauguration day.  Her participation in the debate is unacceptable. If she is allowed to continue as moderator, she should be required, at the very least, to acknowledge her conflict of interest. 


**To email the Executive Director of the Debates Commission: jb@debates.org
**If you would like to call and ask the commission to, at the very least, acknowledge her conflict of interest, call: 202-872-1020.


For this, and further information, see this article by Michelle Malkin.

What makes you think she incable of asking unbiased questions? Did you think Katie Couric asked unfair questions? Here's an example of a normal question that Katie asked her. It's not biased in any way. And here's Palin's answer that doesn't reflect that she has any understanding of the question at all.

Couric: Why isn't it better, governor Palin, to spend $700 billion helping middle class families who are struggling with health care, housing, gas, and groceries; allow them to spend more and put more money into the economy; instead of helping these big financial institutions that played a roll in creating this mess?

Palin: That's why I say, I like every American I'm speaking with, were ill about this position that we have been put in. Where it is the tax payers looking to bail out. But ultimately what the bail out does, is help those who are concerned about the health care reform that is needed to help shore up our economy. Helping those, it's all got to be about job creation too, shoring up our economy, and and putting it back on the right track. So health care reform and reducing taxes and reigning in spending has got to accompany tax reductions and tax relief for Americans; and trade we have, we have got to see trade as opportunity, not as a competitive scary thing. But one in five jobs being created in the trade sector today, we got to look at that as more opportunity. All those things under the umbrella of job creation. This bail out is a part of that.

What? Don't blame the person asking the questions. It was a normal question, with an abnormal answer.

Dave, we all saw the Couric interviews, so you don't need to come here and try to educate an already very informed audience. I can list multiple reasons why Ifill is incapable, but for starters I will just say that she is a proven racist. On top of that, she stands to make a lot of money off of her praise for Obama with her book, and she has been on several major networks seething with disdain for Sarah Palin. Someone with this kind of obvious bias is NOT qualified to moderate a debate in which it is required that the moderator play an unbiased roll. Democrats have proven they are incapable.

And I know WITHOUT A SHRED OF DOUBT that, were the tables turned, Democrats would be foaming at the mouth.

I think the book comes out on inauguration day and that Obama is just part of a book that's about the emergence of African American's new role in American politics. She also discusses Colin Powell, who we all know has been a very influential black Republican. How is it that she's racist? What kind of biased treatment could she inflict in this debate? Deny Palin the chance to speak and respond to questions? I doubt that since all of America has been forced to accept the fact that Palin won't talk to reporters, besides the Couric interview which clearly shows why we haven't had access to someone who may become VP and God forbid, maybe our President. The republicans know how this debate will go down and are just looking for a someone to blame when Palin falls on her face. Good luck tonight with your idiot idol!
